The NECT’s programme is set out in the Education Collaboration Framework, a plan for education reform that was produced in early 2013 through consultation among key role players in the basic education sector.
The ECF was a response by civil society in the education field to government’s call for collaboration to accelerate the pace of national development. It aims to contribute to achieving the education targets set out in the National Development Plan. The ECF has the full support of the Department of Basic Education.
NECT’s point of departure is that government and civil society have different but complementary roles to play in relation to education. The provision of basic education for the general population is the responsibility of the government which is uniquely equipped to fulfil this overarching mandate. Civil society, with its diversity and flexibility, is able to support government by innovation and accelerated delivery. Civil society becomes more relevant and more influential when channelling its efforts in a coordinated way into the national education system.
